How bone densitometers (dexa)s work
The bone densitometer is a very beneficial machine. It is a simple and fast process, and it is noninvasive for the patient. This machine can be helpful for many different types of patients. Some of the patients that could benefit from this type of test include postmenopausal women who are not currently taking estrogen, those who use medications that can cause bone loss, patients who have a thyroid condition, those who have suffered a fracture after they’ve suffered a mild trauma, and those who may be exhibiting signs of osteoporosis. Doctors can find plenty of uses for the machine.
About bone densitometers (dexa)s
Bone densitometry is also known as duel-energy x-ray absorptiometry or DEXA. This technique utilized a small dose of ionizing radiation. This will produce pictures of the interior of the body, and it is used to help measure bone loss. Quite often, a bone densitometer will be used for the hips and the lower part of the spine, where bone loss might be common. However, it is also possible to scan the entire body in some cases. This will help to diagnose issues such as osteoporosis. The machine will also help to determine whether a patient may be at a risk to develop a fracture in the future.
